Addons window does not open when Tools/Addons selected, unless New Tab (blank) selected first. Is there a fix, or is this a bug

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

Chosen solution

This is an issue with one of your add-ons, Mr Tech Toolkit, it is a known problem but I know of no fix, though there are some workarounds.

In the Mr Tech Toolkit options, on the "Manager Hacks > Behaviour" section, you will have "Select Window Target" set to "New Tab". A workaround is to change it to "New Window"

Another workaround is to use a bookmark to open the add-ons manager in a tab. Create a bookmark with the following location: chrome://mozapps/content/extensions/extensions.xul
